    The greater sage grouse inhabits the high plains of the American Northwest, particularly in Wyoming, Nevada, Oregon and Montana. Its existence is intertwined with sagebrush. The Biggest Danger to Sage Grouse. In the Great Basin, it’s clear. Fire and invasive species – primarily cheatgrass -- are the prime threats to greater sage-grouse. Why Sagebrush Matters to Sage Grouse. In the winter, greater sage-grouse feed entirely on sagebrush leaves. Sagebrush also provides protection from the harsh elements.

    RENO, Nev. (AP) — Newmont Mining Corp. officials signed an agreement Tuesday with the U.S. government and the state of Nevada to protect some of the most critical sage grouse . Working groups and government agen-cies are planning and conducting land actions in sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) habitats to benefit Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) populations. Managers have adopted an umbrella concept, creating habitat characteristics specific to sage-grouse requirements, in the belief that other wildlife species dependent on sagebrush .

    In addition the INL is one of the few remaining areas that support abundant populations of sagebrush obligate species such as sage grouse and pygmy rabbits. WCS is working with the U.S. Department of Energy and the S.M. Stoller Corporation to develop a Conservation Management Plan that will provide guidelines for landscape management that are. For example, greater sage‐grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus ; hereafter sage‐grouse), a sagebrush‐obligate species occurring in ecosystems of western North America, have experienced substantial declines in population numbers and significant range contraction since at least the s (Miller et al., ; Schroeder et al., ).

Administered by the Sagebrush Ecosystem Technical Team (SETT), the Nevada Conservation Credit System (CCS) is an innovative approach to greater sage-grouse (GRSG) habitat protection that ensures habitat impacts from man-made disturbances are fully compensated by long-term enhancement and protection of habitat that.

Greater Sage-Grouse are an icon of the American West, their booming mating calls at dawn a signature of the great sagebrush sea that covers much of that region.

As the bird's name suggests, it relies on this habitat to survive. As the American West has become more and more urbanized over the last years, Greater Sage-Grouse populations have declined as their.
